Bangkok boasts a vibrant kaleidoscope of beliefs July 16, 2019

Thailand’s bustling capital is one of Southeast Asia’s most culturally diverse cities where practitioners of numerous religions and belief systems live side by side amicably. All around town Buddhists live next door to Muslims and Christians. Buddhist perform animistic spirit rituals at sacred trees while Catholics pray in their churches and locals of Chinese ancestry pay homage to their ancestors at picturesque shrines. Interfaith harmony is on full display wherever you look.
